Hi @Anonymous ,

It seems there existed empty values in field COMPETITOR_NAME, CUST_NUM, DISTANCE_COVERED, NETWORK_SIZE and so on, you can try to replace the empty values in these fields to null first. Then check whether these fields still display or not in default Tooltips when their values are blank. You can refer the following video to do it.

If ISBLANK, NULL or EMPTY in power query

Hi @Anonymous,

 

Sorry, I think I made a mistake.

Can it be that the values are empty and not NULL / BLANK?

@mwegener 

my main issue is that some of these data belong to blue data points and others belong to red, i want when i hover on a blue data point only data belongs to blue show without showing data belong to red data points so, how can i make it. 

Hi @Anonymous ,

 

I think if the data for the data points returned NULL (BLANK) they would not be shown in the tooltip.

maybe, i'm not sure

Hi @Anonymous ,

 

can you filter on the data in the data view and check what the value e.g. for the first CUST_NUM is?

Hi @Anonymous ,

 

check in Power Query whether the column is empty...

... or null ...

Try to replace the empty values with null values.

But you can bring in your idea here.
